Birmingham City’s Ghanaian youngster Koby Arthur says he wants to prove a point to the Blues manager Lee Clarke after signing a two-year-contract at the St Andrew’s Stadium.
The 17-year-old inked the professional deal with the former Premier League side last week after joining the side as a schoolboy in 2012.
Arthur was being pursued by Premier League giants Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United but he opted to remain at the St Andrew’s Stadium.
Arthur, a powerful striker of the ball who can also play across the middle of the park or in a more advanced role, says he wants to prove a point to the Birmingham City boss Lee Clarke that he merits a place in the team.
“My target is to improve to the coach that I can play in the first team and I’ve to make sure that I work more harder so he can have more confidence in me,” he told Ghanasoccernet.com.
He was give a first team squad number by boss Lee Clark ahead of Blues’ nower Championship fixture against Sheffield Wednesday in February 2013 and made his debut as a late substitute against Wolves on April 1, 2013.
He also came off the substitute bench to replace Wade Elliot in the 78th minute in last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Millwall.
